This was the very thing I was looking for, thankyou so much for uploading this, this gave me a Really good Retro-Perspective of the '30, and 60 minutes of my life well spend.
It seems totally incredible that this transmission made the entire nation panic, yet I'm not surprised once done hearing it.
Perfect Sound Quality, Good Amusement, Draws Your Attetion, Very Interresting, Completely worth the time Spend.
Absolutely captivating, couldn't do anything for an hour until this finished.
Subject: My two cents
The audio quality of this mp3 is perfect. The actual program content was so captivating, I don't recommend trying to listen in your car. This will dominate your attention.
I was planning to test it to see if it would play, and I ended up taking in the entire hour. It stays on my mp3 player now and every once and again I dig it up.
I listen to a lot of old time radio and I have a fair idea of what it may have sounded like to listen to the news in 1938. I'm stunned how close this sounds (most of it) to a news broadcast. I totally understand the mass panic that went along with this programs original airing.
No words can describe this experience. You must listen.

This is brilliant theatre. You have to listen.
Subject: Thank You!
A little noisy, but it was 60 years ago...
Subject: Very Good Quality
I just had to comment that this is a very good quality mp3 encode of this classic broadcast. Also, I believe this is the complete original, with no new material added. Thank you for uploading this.
